Olive Garden's "Buy one - take one" promotion

DuchessNukem | Oct 5, 2013 02:43 AM

The dishes offered are cheap pastas and don't include salad/breadsticks for the takeaway so not a massive expense for the restaurant. And considering that I'd be taking half my plate home anyway, I'd have plenty of flabby pasta to nosh on for a couple of days.

I've gotten a dish or dessert (oh yeah!) to take home from restaurants many times but I can't figure out why this particular promotion seems weird to me. (Not to say I wouldn't take advantage of it, mind you.)

Edited to add/clarify: Does this promo just seem a little weird to anyone else, or just me? What does it say about us as consumers?
